Keep Bright and You
WILL KEEP BUSY
Iilcctric Light is the magnet thnt draws trade. The
bright store is the "hypnotic eye" of business. People can
no more resist the nttrnction of n brilliant, Klectricnlly lighted
store than they can resist the clarion call of n brass baud.
Is your competitor with the Klectricnlly illuinluntcd show
windows, bright interior nnd sparkling Klectric Sign getting
nu advantage over you ? The moth never flutters around the
tinlighted caudtcl Up-to-date stores nowadays consider
!liop-wlndow lighting a necessity, whether they remain open
after dnrk or not. Competition forces modern methods.
A show window brillinutly illuminated with Iilcctric
light will make many n sale "the night before." Iilcctric
light comjc!s attention, makes easy the examination f your
display, shows goods in detail and fabrics in their true colors.
And don't neglect the Klectric Sign. It is soliciting
"tomorrow's" business every moment it is lighted burning
your name hi the public mind. It Is a solicitor that never
becomes .weary never stops work costs little.
